Oak Bluffs is a cherished place, its southern region being the heart of Martha's Vineyard's three down-island towns, if not the entire Island community. This region, a mixture of public & non-profit services, and residential & commercial land uses faces strong development pressures. Few people are aware of the vast amounts of undeveloped land and the interests of current landowners to repurpose their existing developed parcels.
It is the goal of the Oak Bluffs Planning Board to bring an improved process of visioning and oversight to this critical segment of our town.
We invite you to review the recently adopted report of existing land uses and established regulations. This baseline of planning will serve to inform all future efforts in this segment of town. As defined in this report, for planning purposes, this segment of Oak Bluffs will be referred to as The Edgartown- Vineyard Haven Road Corridor.
